101 Uses for a Roast Chicken #9: Mexican Chicken Salad

I have a feeling this is going to be a long series...

Anyway, I concocted this for my dinner tonight, wanting to do something different with your average, every day chicken salad. And it was yummy!

Mexican Chicken Salad

1 1/2 cups roast chicken meat, diced
1/4 cup finely chopped red pepper
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 tbsp light mayo
1 tbsp light sour cream
1 tsp lime juice
1 tsp fajita or taco seasoning mix

Combine ingredients.

I made a sandwich with this using my fabulous sour cream polenta bread, and the combination was great.

Use whatever veggies work for you; I just used what I had on hand.
